五月是聖母月和國際母親節。聖母瑪利亞是基督的母親,也是教會的原始。自天使昭告,將以處女之身誕下人類未來的救世主,聖母的內心不僅擔憂孩子的沉重使命和艱苦前路,還深知道這個孩子永遠不只屬於她這個母親?三十三年後,這位眼見愛子死於酷刑折磨的苦情母親,以她一生的重荷,贏得信友全然的交心。黃崇文 詹芳郁「玫瑰芬芳的旅程」,從移動的旅程中找尋聖母並頌以玫瑰經的讚歌。尤慶瑜「你以後就會知道」,以自己和聖母軍的機緣,揮灑出幽默真誠的篇章,難能可貴。

When I was in the seminary, I learned a counseling technique called “active listening.” When utilizing this technique, the counselor is supposed to repeat back to the counselee what he or she has just heard, only using different words. For example, if someone says to me, “I don’t feel very Christmassy,” I might say, “It sounds like something is bothering you.” This technique is meant to let the counselee know that the counselor is understanding him or her, but to me, it sometimes seems like just a test of my language skills or how fast I can think.

當我在修院的時候,學到一種輔導的方法,叫做“互動式的聆聽”。運用時,輔導員要即席重覆被輔導者剛剛所說的話,但是,需要用不同的措辭和語句來表達。比如說,如果有人對我說“我感覺不到什麼聖誕氣氛。”我可能會說,“你好像有什麼心事。”這種方式是要讓被輔導者體會到輔導員瞭解他或是她。但是,這對我而言,有時候感覺好像在被測試我的語言能力,或是我的反應有多快。

To Hate, Fear, and Suffering in our world:

Perhaps it is simply a matter of being more aware of it, but it feels in the last two months that you have been all around me. So I write you—to Hate, to Fear, to Suffering—so that you will know… That I do not hate. That I am working to move beyond fear. That I am accompanying and will continue to accompany those who suffer. No matter how hard you try and how hard you make it to understand life and people, you have not won.
